Moisture content determination is an important quality control test in pharmaceutical manufacturing, from the checking of incoming raw materials and in-process control of tablets and capsules to undertaking quality checks of finished drugs as part of pharmacopeial testing procedures. Moisture testing is also one of the critical quality parameters in the stability testing of drugs.
How can I measure the moisture content in pharmaceuticals?
The standard method for measuring moisture in pharmaceuticals is loss on drying using a drying oven and a laboratory balance. However, this is a time-consuming and labor-intensive process. A halogen moisture analyzer is a viable alternative for determining moisture content that meets regulations and provides fast, precise and reliable measurements.
How do the results of the moisture analyzer compare to the drying oven?
It is vitally important to develop moisture content drying methods that provide the same results as the official drying oven method. To save you valuable time and effort, METTLER TOLEDO offers tried and tested drying methods for some of the most common pharmaceutical samples and excipients so you can be sure your results will match those of the official method.
